|…Heaven only knows how much was sunk into Judea and Samaria over the last almost half-century now in infrastructure, roads built, water lines laid, an electricity grid, cell phone towers and businesses. All of it financed by the Jewish people which these Arab highwaymen demand as payment for not attacking us with homicidal intensity. In the age of the Oslo Peace Process, which Abbas is now threatening to rip up, there was no peace for the thousands of Jews murdered, even more thousands wounded, maimed and mutilated for life physically and psychology; no peace for the thousands of Arabs we were forced to kill in self-defense. Abbas demands all this real estate which we took away from the attacking Jordanian army. He thinks all these two thousand square miles should be turned over to him and his allegedly archaic nation, and if it does not, Israel will be dragged before the International Criminal Court and charged with war crimes. So much for John Kerry’s big idea of how to make peace…|
|…And so today in the West at least, Jew-haters have taken to denying their Jew-hatred, which has always festered in a cesspool of lies about Jews. Here was a talkbacker denying he was an antisemite in one part of a sentence as he acted out classical antisemitic behavior in the other. He lied about Israel. There is no racism here, no apartheid here, as he charged. What is here is a community of 6 million Jews now defending themselves from violent neighbors who covet the wealth we have created and reject the right of Jews who live independently of Muslim rule. And our defense measures have nothing to do with anyone’s skin color or doctrine of separateness on the basis of skin color, which is what the word apartheid means.
This, then, is the new wrinkle in Jew-hatred in our time. The hatred survives under cover of a newly concocted charge sheet of lies, only now the Jew-hater denies his hatred. He claims it is a rational response to Jewish perfidy.
But it always has been. Every massacre was for “good reason.” And the good reason today is the monumental crime committed by the Jews of having stolen Balestine from the Balestinians which they compound daily by their chronic, racist abuse of them…
|…By the way there is a new affiliated website to check out: HillsofJudea.com which has a link to the front-page editorial in Haaretz the day Israel declared independence in 1948; what a long journey that newspaper has had.
But notice too, when you check it out, the use of the term Hebrew, as opposed to Jew, for that is how the post-religious Zionists regarded themselves: Hebrews, not Jews. They nicknamed Tel-Aviv the first Hebrew city, meaning Hebrew-speaking, and the first university they founded they called Hebrew University, not Jewish University, because the language of instruction would be Hebrew but also because in fact its faculty and student body were overwhelmingly non-observant, post-religious post-Jews, for that was the intellectual fashion of the age in the surrounding Gentile culture in Europe. It is no accident, no coincidence that in the 1870s the concept of antisemitism was all the rage among the chattering classes at the same time one of their leading philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche tore Christianity to shreds, as Tom Paine had in the 1790s; as Karl Marx had dismissed religion in the 1840s and 50s as the opiate of the masses…
|…I find it simply nauseating that any Jew, like the J Street crowd, like Indyk and Kurtzer and the Jews at the New York Times and National Public Radio take the side of the Jew-killers in the matter of their not coming across with the declaration of Jewish rights to independence. Bibi says that is the “sine qua non,” and here was Kerry siding with the PLO by agreeing that this position of Bibi’s is a “mistake” and such a declaration should come at the conclusion of the negotiations.
More inhuman dehumanization of the Jewish people, by supporting a position simply in human, contra natura, against nature. The Israeli demand for such a verbal expression that costs not a cent or shekel or drachma is another way of asking to hear that handing over any land will lead to true peace, the end of the conflict, the end of Arab claims, the end of Arab threats not to murder us wholesale in either war or retail in terrorist atrocities. It is a request for a verbal expression of good, not evil, will.
Israeli is saying, more or less, “Before we hand anything over, do you finally respect our right to our own independence and do you relinquish any claim to having a “right of return” as you understand it?”
Versus the ethical byways of our homicidally antisemitic neighbors now supported by John Kerry, to wit, Israel must purchase Arab good will, and only then will the Arabs deliver an expression of good will.
But if that is the case, then it is not good will but a commodity that can be traded, traded away. It is no more sincere good will than a call girl’s praise for her client’s sexual prowess, whatever the truth…
|…Why am I a racist if I want to live in a country when the holy day of rest is Shabbos, not Friday, not Sunday? Why must I live next door to people who in their generality murder one of their daughters like once every ten days because she dishonored the males in the family by her lascivious behavior, as they configure it? I don’t want neighbors like that.
Which stance by the way puts me squarely opposed to Caroline B Glick’s idea of a solution to the Arab-Israeli fighting: handing out citizenship to another 1.6 million Arabs. Does she really think these people would be happy to start singing the Israeli national anthem about a Jewish heart pining for its homeland over thousands of years?
I have the highest respect for Caroline B. Glick and come Shabbos newspaper reading she is always first on my list for her lively style and sources of information, though she has tendency to suggest the sky is falling when it is not.
But her idea of absorbing all these Arabs is simply not of this world. I’m all for annexing the land that is rightfully, lawfully, morally ours, but giving the Arabs citizenship is simply delusional…
|…The problem with Livni and her generation of Israelis is the disconnect between them and the Jewish people in history. If Tsipi Livni thinks, in her own words, “The whole world blames Israel even though Israel behaved appropriately” and it’s Uri Ariel’s fault they do, she has zero sense of the history of the Jewish people. She has no sense that in every generation in Christendom and Islam the Jews were believed to be behind all kinds of misfortunes. The Jews were always guilty of something.
In a way, the guilty Jew is the core image of Christianity: Jesus, the Jew, is tortured to death for all the sins of mankind. As he passed from life to death he bore all the sins of mankind and thus cleansed men of their guilt.
And indeed in Jewish history in every generation Christians have killed guilty Jews for one reason or another…
|…The Oslo Process — still on-going this week — also implied the near-miraculous transformation of mass murdering, antisemitic Hamitic Arab savages into friendly people who just wanted to be the Jewish people’s friendly neighbors, and the concomitant, functionally inhuman judgment that these not serial killers but serial massacre freaks were sincere in their protestations of newfound peaceful intent and — just as crazy — the belief they could be trusted to be men of their word.
Ten months after the handshake on the White House lawn, Yasir Arafat in a limousine he entered in Rafah, Egyptian-ruled Sinai, rode into the Gaza Strip to deliriously cheering herds of Ishmaelites while hiding on the floor below the window line was a killer terrorist so evil Israel had told Arafat they would never let him return.
In order words: in the split-second Arafat returned to Gaza for the first time since 1967, he violated his word, and it was a harbinger of broken words to come without end. Like Barack Obama who cannot miss a day without lying, so Arafat was a congenital, chronic liar, and for years to come no Israel, no progressive IBJ (Inside-the-Beltway Jew) would ever call him on it. I think, don’t quote me, Dennis Ross in his book on the so-called peace process admitted that not calling Arafat & Co. to task for their broken promises was a major of the peace process. I’ll say…
|…What madness. What stupidity. The daily peregrinations and doings this week of Kerry and Indyk and their Arab protégés, and those of Prime Minister Netanyahu and his staff, are nothing but the insane continuation of that insane handshake on the White House lawn now more than 20 years ago. The goal of that abomination remains the goal of Kerry and world anti-Jewry which is to pry Jews out of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, based on the belief that the so-called Balestinians just want a state on this land next door to Israel.
When will this whirlwind of delusion and antiJew venom cease?..
|…He even went on to praise Arafat who was “after all, the man who created a nation of the Arabs who were either turned into refugees or saw their land come under Israeli control in the 1948-Arab-Israeli War and the Six-Day War.”
And I say, dear me. This is painful to read. I mean Wagner is no Leftist jerk and malefactor like Beilin and Indyk and Friedman who wave the flag of the Ancient Palestinians.
Nonetheless, it is depressing to see how Wagner has assimilated, without knowing it, the poison antiJew spew in our generation. When he writes of Arafat making incredibly bad choices that delayed the creation of a Balestinian state, he reveals his belief in Arafat’s desire for a Balestinian state; for anybody’s desire for a Balestinian state. He has swallowed like a communion wafer belief in this alleged nation-building nationality; belief in Arafat’s desire for such a state.
This is utter nonsense. The Arabs have been offered statehood again and again and each have refused it, which permits some of us to consider the possibility they really don’t want state…
…Winston Churchill said,
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith…
One can only wonder if Barack Obama ever read these words and was enraged by Churchill’s rejection of the faith he so obviously holds in high esteem…
|(October 15, 2013)…What Israelis miss is that our enemies hate us here from the wellsprings of their Hamitic-Ishmaelitic culture and religious beliefs which have nothing to do with any Balestinians or the alleged need to give them a state.
That is why Bibi is right on target demanding that the enemy recognize our right to a state, and why uneducated, narcissistic dummies like Lapid don’t get it.
Our enemies here are mostly Muslims whose relationship to the Jewish people did not begin in 1967, 1947, 1917, 1897. They have been hostile to our Zionist enterprise proclaiming striving for and attaining Jewish independence from Day One.
And over the last century the only thing that has changed is the narrative because the Arabs have successfully, with the help of doltish Israelis, created this Frankenstein monster of a nation whose sole purpose has been to justify Arab resistance to Jewish freedom and justify what they call the armed struggle and civilized people called terrorist atrocities…
|(August 15, 2013)…The politics surrounding the State of Israel are unique in the world. In addition to all the normal facets of the life of a nation among the nations, the political and military and economic dimensions, with Israel there is always the unique dimension of religion and homo sapiens‘s never-ending rebellion against G-d…|
|(July 18, 2013)…So I reserve judgment on the gravity of this demarche by the bureaucracy in Brussels, its real impact. I have no doubt it has been fueled by vintage European Jew-hatred of many generations. This EU diktat is a cousin of the Polish legislation outlawing the kosher slaughter of animals. Each is a jab at the Jews the way the Roman centurion jabbed his lance in the side of the Jew on the cross. For fun, for sadistic pleasure. Again, it is a mistake to think that anything the EU does is for the benefit of the Ancient Ones. What moves them is their age-old hostility to Jews.
The EU organization has come down and not for the first time 100% alongside the Arabs here, these Muslims with their suicide bombers, their terrorists who enjoy bashing Jewish faces and heads into pulp.
And all those who side with the Arabs in the matter of who owns Judea and Samaria are anti-Jews plain and simple. Here is a property dispute: who owns this land? And the EU is 100% on the side of the barbarians.
The morality of this policy – the idea that Israel must hand back all the land it took in 1967 – could not be more antisemitic for denying the age old principle to Jews of “to the victors go the spoils…
|(June 16, 2013)…Anyway, I say the top story was the pseudo-election in Iran because all six candidates were approved by Mr. Big, the Muslim ayatollah who succeeded Khomeini and so it was basically a sham election yesterday. The Iranians are smart and clever and bona fide tricksters and dissemblers, and it is highly likely that while the other five candidates were seen as conservative, even reactionary, Rohani’s election as the “moderate” candidate in contrast to them was exactly what Khamenei wanted. The other five split the reactionary vote allowing this “maverick moderate” to win.
Well, this character has been an insider with the top dogs all his political life. There are photos of him at prayer in the first row just behind Ayatollah Khomeini. He also was in charge of leading Iran’s talks with the West over its nuclear project and of course that effort has never been anything but a scam…
|(May 2, 2013)…And likewise Herzl’s spiritual offspring today, Israel’s Leftists. Just today the latest Pew Research Center poll reported that 40% of Muslims support suicide bombing.
Now, dying for one’s religion under certain circumstances is even a Jewish value. Knowingly going to one’s death for a religious principle deserves honor, but tragically the Muslim barbarians, 40% of them who think this way, suffer from a kind of monocular vision. All they see is the act from the point of the suicide bomber sacrificing for a cause greater than his own life; what they don’t see are his victims: innocent passersby, undefended, women, children, old people at random whose lives the suicide maniac takes from them. He may have the right to sacrifice for his beliefs in order to reach Paradise, but he does not have the right to sacrifice me and others for his quest.
Gai gezunterheit, go kill yourself Abdul, but leave me and us Jewish people out of it…
|(April 11, 2013)…In my lifetime, the culture invented the prenuptial agreement before marriage, which practice, the writing and reading out loud at the wedding of the kesuba, the marriage contract, has been Jewish practice for thousands of years. It obligates the husband far more than the wife and spells out her rights. A Jewish father marrying off his daughter hears the marriage contract read aloud in public which obligates his future son-in-law to be a good husband to his daughter. The signing of the kesuba, the protection of the wife is part of a network of Jewish behaviors that have kept this people alive as no other and against all odds and aggressions for thousands of years.
But the top story today in Israel continued to be the assault on Jewishness by a handful of women arguably neurotic for accusing others of their own sin…
|(March 5, 2013)…It is also a fact that of the eight founding terrorists in Fatah in 1959, all had been boyhood members of the Muslim Brotherhood youth group.
Michael Oren and Bibi Netanyahu and Haaretz and AIPAC live in a world where the Two-State Solution is The Solution. Everybody knows that – but in reality the Two-State Solution, as the enemies of Israel conceive of it, will never happen.
No Israeli regardless of political or religious or atheistic bent who is not insane wants to see the high ground overlooking Ben Gurion Airport in the hands of Arabs absent the presence of the IDF and the Jewish communities who live on this high ground.
Nobody, regardless of political party who is not suicidal thinks it would be a good idea if all the Jews abandoned their homes and all the Israeli police and army too, and in their place 100% Arab sovereign rule would take over, which is what Barack Hussein has in mind. And all antisemites like him. But this is not going to happen…
|(January 10, 2013)…Uncle Shimon the national village idiot was in the New York Times yesterday bad-mouthing his country’s prime minister. Shimon was called a tireless underminer for this behavior by the late Rabin. A more educated man than Rabin might have called it compulsive behavior. Shimon is a tireless saboteur of the man in authority. Again and again Peres decided that he knew better than the prime minister how to deal with the Arabs, and set out to do that, and to hell with the prime minister’s policy; you know, the man whom people had voted for when they cast their ballots. Not for Shimon, but the man at the top. And Shimon is a compulsive aggressor against the man at the top…|
|(December 20, 2012)…Nuland’s official statement said, “Israeli leaders continually say that they support a path towards a two-solution, yet these actions only put that goal further at risk.”
And she is absolutely right. And that is a result of the contradiction between Netanyahu’s Bar-Ilan statement and what he really plans to do, which is not to permit the “Two-State Solution” to materialize, because that very expression is an antisemitic deception.
The “Two-State Solution” is a euphemism for the diabolical fantasy of driving hundreds of thousands of Jews from homes they have built for themselves with their own money and have every legal right to own and live in in peace and freedom.
It is the repressed, inarticulate fantasy of an expulsion of Jews of the same magnitude as the great historic Expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews from Spain in 1492…
|…Yesterday, the bad news out of London was the sentence of life given to the convert to Islam who chopped Drummer Lee Rigby’s head off last May.
Think of that: rather, deprogram it. He murdered Rigby, took his life, and what did this post-Biblical, English court give him? They gave him his life! A life sentence. They sentenced him to life; what a gift!
For sure he will be confined indoors, but in that time for sure such murderers find some time to enjoy life. A cold drink of water on a hot day; relieving themselves of all the water they drink. When you’re bladder’s bursting, it truly is a pleasure to release all that water. He can read books in the prison library, play some basketball.
The murderer was given life, instead of death! The Bible tells us after the Great Flood that henceforth — apparently this was not so before the Flood — Man will take the life of a murderer. Capital punishment is mandated for the most heinous of crimes.
But here in our post-Christian, post-Jewish West, the height of morality is acting as if modern man knows better than HaShem/G-d in matters of this kind…

…What Wilf cannot see is that the people she calls “Palestinians” are simply not motivated by “Palestinian patriotism” because there is no such thing; never has been such a thing. As my book makes clear, the official Arab line until the 1960s was that there was no Palestine and no “Palestinians” because only the Zionists proudly used the terms. There had been no Falastin throughout Muslim history and their resistance to the League of Nations Mandate was rooted in their rejection of the very idea of an area being created called Palestine when since the 7th century there never had been.
What Wilf and fellow Political Scientists don’t get is that the “Palestinian” national identity is a “burka” of an idea (a garment that completely covers up the woman) in this case the truth that what fuels the fire in their hearts and minds today against the Jews is the same as it was before the 1960s.
In other words, Dr. Wilf the Political Scientist calls them “Palestinians,” but underneath they remain violent, blood-thirsty, imperialistic, larcenous Arab Muslims whose attitude and behaviors toward the Jewish people over 14 centuries are a matter of record, if people would only take the time to peruse it…
|Program Link: Hath Not a Jew Eyes?|
…I read such words and can only shake my head at the age-less behavior here that predates Zionism. What is all this peace process about if not the demand by the Muslims and their antiJew backers around the world, that hundreds of thousands of Jews must be evacuated from their communities and homes; homes they built, furnished, raised their families in, attended their synagogues in? And here is the Gentile paritz (in Hebrew the Gentile ruler, lord of the manor) telling us Jews we might be able to remain in our homes
Oh thank you, Secretary Kerry. Thank you for considering a scenario opposed to enlightened opinion according which we Jews will not be forced out of our homes to become refugees basically in our own ancient promised land.
And one reason for this state of affairs is the congenital inability of this Israeli government, following in the footsteps of the anti-religious Labor government that came with the Oslo process, to declare, like the late Communist folk singer Pete Seeger, “This land is our land” and in contradistinction to other lands where we sojourned for 18 centuries of mostly oppression and persecution, here nobody tells us where we can and cannot live.
Israeli governments, the fruit of post-religious Jews have been incapable of flying the flag of the Jewish religion, the true nuclear core of Jewish identity, and tell the world to get lost and stop trying to dictate to us where we can and cannot live…
|…Yeah, so Kerry has no understanding of the Arabs, and the post-Jewish Jews here are no help, for they cannot see the Arabs and Muslims here as classical Arabs and Muslims, not Balestinian nationalists and patriots, though Obama is not so naïve. He is a Muslim crusader and chronic Jew-hater because that is basically what Islam is at base: a form of antisemitism. The Christians in their New Testament do not lack for cosmic accusations of evil against the Jews, but at least in schlepping around the Old Testament as they call it, they at least left it alone and appended their story to it.
Versus the Muslims who re-wrote the Torah and claimed it was Jews who re-wrote the Qur’an. Musa, their mangled mispronunciation, of Moshe, brought down from Mt. Sinai the Qur’an but then the wicked Jews took it away from him and re-wrote it. Isma’il was the favorite son of Ibrahim and he bound his son for a sacrifice in Mecca, and when the Jews say it was Ishaq in al-Quds/Jerusalem, the Jews lie.
How can anyone think that with such people a nice, amicable, compromising, harmonious rule of these hills between Jews and Ancient Palestinians can be possible? It is Alice in Wonderland thinking…
|…Director Ken Loach also said Israel, “throws children in prison.” That’s amazing. For some reason, Israel, what, kidnaps Ancient Palestinian boys and girls and just for no reason, probably just the innate cruelty and sadism of Jews, throws them in prison.
And I say this Brit is a worthy descendant of Charles Dickens and his creation Fagin.
This is the culture of England, and Ken Loach is a man of culture, which has a history, starting at least in the 16th century of producing artists like William Shakespeare who wrote The Merchant of Venice with its Shylock and Christopher Marlowe who wrote The Jew of Malta which was originally called The Famous Tragedy of the Rich Jew of Malta which, Wikipedia says, is about “a Maltese Jew’s barbarous revenge against the city authorities.”
I myself remember reading as a boy Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and I think it opens with a Jew-joke. The Brits have long been unashamedly anti-Jew. No politically correct politesse toward Jews until after the Shoah.
Now it is taboo to be openly antiJew so the default option is to be anti the State of Israel for the terrible things it allegedly has done and is doing to the Ancient Palestinians, like throwing children into prison.
Yes, the Jews are notorious for the gratuitous sadism and brutality…
|…The Israelis will make a quantum leap forward when they understand that the hostility to Israel has nothing to do with the history of an injustice done to the Ancient Palestinians because that is a phantom nation sucked out an oriental water-pipe to serve as a smoke-screen for old-time, pre-Zionist Jew-hatred.
The Times of Israel website reported today on a new study just published by the Israel Balestine Mission Network of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in which, the study concludes, the major source of the Israel-Balestine conflict is Zionism itself which is on a par with “Christian exceptionalist beliefs that contributed to the Nazi Holocaust. The genocide of Native Americans, and countless other instances of tragic brutality.”
This is rich. Here is a major Presbyterian organization protesting the genocide of Native Americans when there was no genocide. There was a collision between a Stone Age culture and modern civilization; one thrived, the other did not survive, and that had nothing to do with a centralized plan to exterminate the aboriginals as they were sometimes called in the earliest days of the Republic.
And it is rich because among the leaders of the settlement of the United States were Presbyterians, the Protestant church of Scotland a.k.a. Scotch-Irish who bravely penetrated the American wilderness and did not let the aboriginal nomads deter them with their barbaric violence…
|…Erekat said this; listen carefully: “I told minister Livni in Munich recently that we won’t change our history, culture and religion. We are not going to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.”
Precisely, but John Kerry and Leftist Jews and Israelis refuse to listen and take seriously.
In Friday’s Makor Rishon, editorial pages editor in Maariv Ben-Dror Yemini wrote on this topic of the Arabs being incapable of recognizing Israel as the state of the Jewish people but he said that is because of the right of return issue. Ben-Dror Yemini like too many native, non-religious Israelis, think that Abbas, Erekat & Co., hold most dear this “right of return” fantasy (which they do not have) and so recognizing Israel as belonging to the Jews negates that. The right of return as the Arabs use it is yet another act of intellectual property theft. As they stole the Torah, re-wrote it and called in the Qur’an; as their Hamitic forebears the Philistines stole (for a time) the Ark of the Covenant, so the term “right of return” they stole from Israel…
|…So no I do not see John Kerry as antisemitic, which word resonates with a terrible history. I do, though, see him as a boring, run-of-the-mill man of his time and society which is most definitely antiJew.
Obama, by contrast, I think, is a real antisemite; Kerry is not. He is a creature of politically correct fashion and old-fashioned ignorance about Jews and Muslims and the Middle East.
And as for Avigdor Lieberman who has come to his defense: he is too unJewish in his contempt for those of us who believe this land is holy. Lieberman is basically a Russian nationalist, a Putin, who happened to be born a Jew. For him Israel is his national identity and relates to it as Putin does to Russia.
And not coincidentally, because he is so unreligious, he misreads John Kerry and what he represents: thousands of years of Western civilization marked and scarred by its vicious abuse of the Jews…
|…The relations between the young, nubile and fertile are without restraint, a freedom enabled by modern medical pills and devices. The women today, with their hemlines where they are, dress themselves like the street-walkers of earlier generations.
Internet traffic, it was reported recently, is like a third pornography, which is why there are Haredi companies who provide the service of previewing every website, which prevents your children at an earlier age from using the computer unsupervised and coming across the filth.
Recently at one of those endless series of awards ceremonies entertainers are always giving themselves, one Miley Cyrus was dressed as if to appear in her undergarments and she danced like the women in pornographic films always have, only this live broadcast could be seen in billions of family homes, their living rooms or bedrooms. It is a culture swimming in pornography.
Popular movies serve up dialogue laced in dirty words, and it is this world, this society in the West, which can be found even in the Israeli army, and Haredi fathers simply do not want to expose their sons to it.
So I empathize with them. They fear losing their sons. That is how they express it…
|…Bibi has said as many times as we have heard this that the other side “must recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish people,” only I wish he came up with a new formula. For example, how about: “The Palestinians must accept the right of al-Yahud to live free of Muslim oppression mandated in Sharia statutes.”
Or how about, “The Jews have the right to live free in their ancient homeland given to them by Allah as it says in the Qur’an” citing the chapter and verse which does refer to Allah’s gift of a land (however unnamed) to al-Yahud.
And the reason for that is then the focus will fall on the true center of the conflict, the religious core in Islam that burns with hatred for Jews. Islam is a religion of hatred for non-Believers and a justification for conquering them, ruling over them, forcing them to convert to Islam, and of course confiscating their property; confiscation being in this case a euphemism for stealing all of their property and wealth…
|…This again is the tragic flaw of this people, really of the human race: betrayal of a brother. No one asks the trendy lefties to live a Jewish life. They are entitled to believe and behave as they choose.
But they are not licensed not to fight for the right of a Jew to live and rule in Judea and Samaria for a settler’s rights to his home are identical to that of the Jew in North Tel-Aviv. Identical.
And it is that betrayal which is also so characteristic of Leftists in general, like John Kerry becoming a mouthpiece for the Communists in the Viet Cong and North Viet Nam, like his boss Barack Obama who betrayed Egypt and betrays Israel…

…Well, yesterday was International Holocaust Day and I wish that half of our Knesset and other movers and shakers had not gone to Auschwitz because it is not our day. The State of Israel has its own Holocaust and Heroism Memorial Day, as it is called, while traditional Jews include its victims with those remembered on the 9th of Av.
This January 27th date was I think a UN concoction, which already in my mind smears it with a bad smell, for that is an antisemitic operation through and through.
Like other manifestations of covert antiJew animosity, the UN links the Holocaust with other episodes of man’s inhumanity to man on a massive scale when the Holocaust was unique…
|…And surprising it was this morning at first light to hear Kol Yisrael report that the prime minister on Friday in Davos, in meetings with the Secretary of State of the Muslim-led United States of America told him [this later from JPost hard copy] “I have no intention of evacuating any settlement or uprooting any Israelis.”
This of course was a bombshell in Israel today. What? Bibi has agreed to the creation of a state of Balestine presumably in Judea and Samaria in which the so-called large settlement blocs will remain but by implication the little ones will be destroyed and the Jews driven out of them as in Gush Katif.
But here was Bibi basically laying claim to not just the so-called large settlement blocs but all the settlements…
|…The history of the Jews is a history of creating religions and religious sects and their sectarians. Most notable, Christians, Muslims, Karaites, Samaritans, Essenes, Sadducees, Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist and even Yiddishists.
And historians of the future might eventually classify the Zionists as one of them and for sure one of the strangest Jewish movements in history. For one, it is surely the first that does not casually refer to non-Jews as goyim. For Israel’s Enlightened, it is even an ugly word for it sets the Jews apart, and being standoffish has been, the Enlightened think, one of the main reasons people hate us.
I used to have an English friend, a very pleasant fellow, who said “The problem with you lot is you stick together.” No biological theorist of the racial inferiority of Jews, he had no objection to them blending into English. It was their persistent difference and community with one another that bothered him.
He was not prepared to see that this is so for a couple of perfectly understandable reasons, such self-protection from goyim like him and his English people with a record of persecution and discrimination and irrational fantasies about us.
Another reason is we like each other and share a world-view together. We are proud of Jewish accomplishments and are not embarrassed to remain Jews and live with other Jews…
|…Not that I am either disappointed or angry. I do not accuse him of hypocrisy. If I were Stephen Harper I would do exactly as he has: publicly defend Israel but officially go along with the policies of similar governments because Stephen Harper may love Israel but is paid a salary to defend Canada and Canadians. And if his government were not to take the politically correct line and even come out in support of Jewish sovereign rights in Judea and Samaria, he could become another Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama responsible for the killing of four US personnel in Benghazi. If Canada was not to take the conventional position, this would license in the minds of the homicidal Hamites here in the Middle East an attack on a Canadian consulate, embassy, business or people. Stephen Harper may be a great friend of Israel but he is a greater friend of his own countrymen and it would irresponsible to go public with support for Jewish rights to Judea and Samaria…|
|…If John Kerry believes that Muslim terrorists today are driven by the poverty of their upbringing, he hasn’t been reading the newspapers for the several decades, even as he served, inter alia, as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
In other words, this incident Malkin reported on I find truly frightening because it is more evidence that in addition to the secret Muslim agent imposter in the White House, who also is on record saying 9-11 resulted from “poverty, ignorance, helplessness and despair,” the State Department is run by an idiot.
The Secretary of State of the United States of America thinks that the horrors of international terrorism pulled off by Muslim maniacs are rooted in their poor childhoods?
Lord have mercy. How did this happen? How did the once great United States of America raise up for leaders these two jerks who have by their stupidity and malevolence presided over a Middle East turned upside down and set on fire…
|…I sensed a personal insult in Bogie’s words when he said, so to speak, “Who is this pisher John Kerry to teach me about how to deal with my neighbors?” And Maariv today also fingered Martin Indyk as the leader of the pack, in touch with left-wing Israeli reserve officers and U.S. military officers who have worked with Israelis and support Imam Obama’s views. It is Martin Indyk who is orchestrating the operation against Yaalon and Netanyahu’s view, the view of the overwhelming majority of Israelis who follow the news that withdrawing from the Jordan River and allowing the Arabs as much power in Judea and Samaria as they now have in Gaza, would be suicidal…|
|…What’s going on — this weirdness of phony peace talks — is the result of persisting in the vision of Rabin, Peres, Beilin and other Enlightened post-Jews called the Oslo agreement. Kerry and world antiJewry keep trying to drive us from Judea and Samaria on the false premise that what the Arabs want is just Judea and Samaria, though by their refusal to salute the right of the Jewish people to have their own, independent state anywhere in Balestine, they put the lie to that.
What Bibi does by his ultimate his demand — that they recognize Israel as the Jews’ state as of right — is to expose the lie that their goal is the positive creation of yet another Arab-Muslim polity when their real goal is the negative destroying of the Jews’ freedom and stealing all their money…
|…In fact, Oxford University historian Albert Hourani, in the early 1990s published a major work he called A History of the Arab Peoples (note the plural) and in his introductory pages was at length to explain his title for even he has trouble seeing an Arab nation, a unified community.
The history of nationalism in the West covers centuries of a process of ever expanding group identities which congeal into one identity. Spain, France, Germany, Italy et cetera came together as separate and singular nation-states after centuries of provincial princes and dukedoms.
But the Arabs, by contrast never became a nation. They remain largely tribal and regional and incapable of shedding their particular local identities for a larger national one.
And what is happening today in the Middle East is the bonfire of the Arab nationalist movement going down in flames to the rise of imperialist and totalitarian Islam, terrorist Islam.
And in this turmoil, Israel’s Arab Christian citizens should understandably be moving in the direction of the Druse who may speak Arabic but don’t call them Arabs. According to this report, some of them are starting to call themselves Arameans, not Arabs…
|…So this morning an IDF patrol along the Jurassic Park-type barrier surrounding the Gaza rectangle came under mortar fire. Three shells landed. No casualties, no damage. By noon, the Air Force executed two bombing runs, claiming afterwards to have “intercepted terrorists during their final preparations to launch rockets toward Israel.” Just about every day now there is fire out of Gaza and Israeli counter-strikes which kill a teenager here, a teenager there.
And again the MSM today said it was the “Palestinians” who fired the mortars, which I consider the worst kind of journalism. All these rocket-launcher boys are themselves launched by Hamas and Islamic Jihad and other cells all bearing Islamist names, all of them functionally disdainful of nationalist identity. They see themselves as Muslims fighting the infidel Jews whom the Qur’an calls the Muslims’ worst enemies. As Muslims they launched their deadly weapons, but the MSM here keeps calling them “Palestinians.” Same-old same old…
|…In any case, this ignoramus of our neighbors Ehud Olmert doesn’t get it that the dream of “full equality” between Jews and Muslims is the antithesis of their dream. They want to return to the days of yesteryear when they were the dominant people who treated Jews the way white trash in the segregated American South treated their “Nigras”: with contempt, sadism, disrespect, exploitation, injustice. Olmert dreams of a world the Muslims never dream of, and because there are far more Muslims around here than Jews, his dream of “full equality” is logically and simply not of this world…|
|…Lastly, Mordechai Kedar had a great lede sentence today in JPost Features:
“Everyone is aware of the American plan to impose the Muslim Brotherhood on Egypt and any other country that would allow it. The reasons for this American plan were revealed on this stage a half-year ago.”
Think of that. This is would have been the equivalent during the Cold War of having a president in the Oval Office who sided with the Kremlin against his own country.
Last week FOX TV posted a video clip of Charles Krauthammer saying, “Obama has taken the side of the mullahs in Iran against Congress.”
Think of that: to me it is on the same level as Obama demanding, like the Queen of Hearts in Wonderland, that everyone think of the Ft. Hood massacre as a workplace accident having nothing to do with Islam!
At the Nelson Mandela funeral, Obama, besides his now infamous “selfie” photograph, met with the head of the Polisario Front based in Algeria which attacks the traditional American ally Morocco.
The Polisario is categorized in the State Department as a terrorist outfit, and here was Obama smiling next to its headman, Muhammad Abdel Aziz.
Hashem Yirakhem. Lord have mercy…

…So John Kerry on one side descends from Aaron the brother of Moses, a Cohen forebear who betrayed Aaron and Moses by his apostasy and became Roman Catholic, and on the other descends from the first Americans who loved the Jewish Bible. He was back in town today for his tenth visitation in 11 months.
His compulsive fixation on Israel is by definition unhealthy for distracting attention from the main enemy to his country, imperial Iran which if not stopped will eventually have enough equipment and weapon to stand eye to eye with the United States of America and basically aggress against it in order to topple America from its perch as the greatest country in the world.
Muslims like Kerry’s boss don’t like it that the world looks up to America. Obama in public declared he does not believe in American exceptionalism. One assumes — but only assumes – that as a progressive, multicultural thinker he prefers to see all cultures of equal worth; and I emphasize “one assumes” that is the alternative but he may also be thinking, “No, the one true exceptional culture is Islam.”
|…Bibi seems to be playing for time and doing what he thinks will deter the antisemitic Europeans from having an excuse to aggress against us economically and politically, but I doubt the ultimate effectiveness of his tactics and strategy.
I think he would be more successful in dropping this futile insistence on Israeli security concerns which no one cares about and rebuts in any case with proposals such as Kerry’s calling for surrendering land and having the US and other powers defend Israel instead of the IDF. That, they say, will answer Israel’s security needs.
I would much rather see him speak the truth that this aggression against us by the Ishmaelites and their backers in the EU and the White House is nothing but the old-time religion in modern dress.
This war against our presence in Judea, Samaria and above all Jerusalem is a war against our religion, and it is in the realm of religion Israel must fight.
Official Israel must tell our enemies that this is the Holy Land, the Land promised to us by the G-d of the Bible, and their hatred and aggression is nothing less than a war against our religion, and we wish they would knock it off…
|…It is nothing short of astounding to yours truly that after the awful driving of 10,000 Jews from their homes in Gush Katif they had every right to live in, the destruction of their communities, the wrecking of lives and livelihoods – which destruction brought nothing in the way of peaceful intent out of Gaza just tens of thousands of missiles — that Israelis like Peri and Livni can envision an even greater expulsion of Jews from Judea and Samaria. It is as if they learned absolutely nothing from the destruction of Gush Katif and subsequent rocket attacks. They still cling to the Oslo fantasy that at the end of the day the Arabs will say, “Okay. Just give us Judea and Samaria and we will cease being the violent haters that we are and become smiling good neighbors.
It is truly amazing to yours truly as well that Peri can talk this way in a week when all around us our Muslim neighbors are as usual in such violent turmoil. These people have never learned to live peaceably with one another but with us Jews they will?
|…This war-crime claim that the settlements are a war crime according to that Geneva Convention is nothing but more ugly antisemitism in its dishonesty. As the Levy Report argues — as has been argued for almost 50 years now since the Six-Day War — Israel’s claim on Judea and Samaria is arguably the greatest claim on the basis of the League of Nations Mandate, which was perfectly silent about any nation of Balestinians having title to this real estate, and Israel’s capture in self-defense and routing of the Arab Legion which was truly in illegal occupation.
Tragically, and almost mysteriously, one government after another in this country has refused for almost 50 years to publicly stake Israel’s claim to this land. Regardless of the political party in charge, every Israeli government has operated in the hope of ridding itself for much of this territory in exchange for peace, with even this right wing prime minister publicly acknowledging the rightness not of Jewish sovereignty but Ancient Balestinian sovereignty…
|…Caroline Glick today in JPost finally got around to what yours truly has preached for years: this is a battle for our rights, not for acceptable security measures and the right of the “victims of Zionism.”
What Israel needs to battle is the poison favored by such as LTF and Alan Dershowitz that yes, Israel may have the right to live in Judea and Samaria but more important than Israelis rights is peace with the Ancient Ones. That is more important than Jewish rights.
But I say Jewish rights are as important as Negro rights were in the Jim Crow South and the rights of Blacks in apartheid South Africa to better treatment by the government of the country.
How materialistic these Israelis are, the offspring of post-religious Jews, post-spiritual Jews. How imprisoned they are in material concerns like security arrangements instead of fighting for the right of this people to life, peace, liberty and the pursuit of Jewish life in our ancient homeland, which includes the right to keep the spoils of war.
What Bibi has done is join the antiJews in agreeing to the rights of our mortal enemies while begging only for security measures which by their very existence are evidence of his belief that our neighbors even after the hypothetical creation of a Balestinian state will still want to destroy ours, dip their hands in as much Jewish blood as they can and steal all the wealth we have created here…
|…About two o’clock this afternoon an innocent inter-urban bus for guilty Jews – in the eyes of Muslim Believers – was chosen by one of the sons of Ishmael to be bombed — but fortunately the dozen-only people on it alerted the driver to an abandoned bag. He saw wires sticking from it, pulled the bus over –it was in Bat Yam at the time on the way to Bnai Barak. He told everyone to leave, which they did. The police were alerted; sappers arrived, and as they were dealing with it, it blew up. Fortunately only one of the sappers was injured lightly.
The police surmise it was planted by Arabians fearful that the so-called peace talks would succeed and these factors oppose any peace between Believers and what the Qur’an calls their worst enemies, the Jews.
Today’s incident likely is related to the attempts two days ago on Friday and yesterday, on four separate occasions, IDF soldiers opened fire on Arabs who appeared near the barrier between Gaza, just a few miles down the coast in this tiny state from Bat Yam, who also seemed to be placing a bomb. On Friday when soldiers saw suspicious movements along the fence, they shot in the air to frighten the hostiles away, but when they did not leave the soldiers took aim at their legs and hit two of them.
Yesterday on the holy Sabbath there was similar activity and this time our soldiers killed one of them…

…Unbelievable. If you remember, Olmert that corrupt fool, offered to give away the store and it still was not enough for this Arab thief who demands everything. Here he is claiming he was ready for a deal back then and when everyone remembers he rejected the disgusting Olmert’s offer.
What will it take for otherwise sober people to see and understand that Abbas and his tribesmen simply do not want a state in Judea and Samaria even under the most generous terms and the reason for that is that they are in 2013 no more willing to accept the right of us Jews to live free of their tyranny than they ever were. Which is why Bibi demands they admit to that right, which is a variation of what Ehud Barak demanded of Arafat 13 years ago at Camp David, that he sign off on language containing the words “end of conflict.” Ehud Barak also was ready to give away the store in exchange for such a declaration which Arafat would not give, which refusal blew up the Camp David talks, in addition to his demented claim to Bill Clinton’s face that the Jews never had a temple on Haram as-Sharif. The Jews only say that because they want to steal it from the Arabs.
How’s that for psychological projection?
|…I had an Israeli woman friend for many years, raised in a truly antisemitic Communist household, who spent ten years in London getting a degree in history and then becoming a professor of history in Israel, who was convinced even after ten years in London, that the English did hold English Jews in contempt but not Israelis whom they saw as virtually another nationality. Some of the English, she believed, were so uneducated they did not think of Israelis as Jews at all.
She is the type of Leftist intellectual here who insists that because she does not believe in the Jewish religion, she is not a Jew. She does not believe in Catholicism, so don’t call her a Catholic, and likewise don’t call her a Jew.
Ron Pundak, another I think historian, one of the Oslo architects, says the same thing. He insists he is not a Jew but like her a Communist.
And one suspects it is this attitude which contributes to the inability of Israelis like the otherwise estimable Bibi to declare the legality, indeed the righteous right of Israel to sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, a right ultimately rooted in the Jewish religion, because they are embarrassed to identify with it. Or like Livni and Beilin, they are determined to keep religion out of it, out of the conflict here, because then there is no solution…

…The aggression against Israel for our presence, continuing presence in Judea and Samaria; in Hevron, Shechem and above all Jerusalem is clearly more than an attack on the Jewish people. It is part of history’s endless resistance to the religion of the Jews. In this our struggle is a religious aggression, as Jews have been the target of the religions of Christianity and Islam and Communism, a substitute/phony religion, all of which snarl at the refusal of the Jewish people to forsake our religion for theirs.
Like the famous Sherlock Holmes story in which the key clue was the dog that did not bark — an event that did not happen — it is the absence of religion in all this blah-blah about Balestinian nationalism — a phantom if there ever was one — and military defense measures and tactics and techniques which alludes to Religion as the heart of the matter…
